"Networking is a two-way street. We always talk about networking generosity and being generous in the sense of being considerate when you’re networking and one of the most generous things you can do in this day and age is be thoughtful and well-researched in why you’re asking somebody else for their time." http://buff.ly/2mSajZG #BYDN

Q: What is the best way to gracefully exit a conversation?
Me: Be polite. There’s not one answer given the endless number of difficult, awkward, dull and uncomfortable situations we can find ourselves in. By being polite, you can walk away staying true to your values.

We’ve all done it: tossed the embossed card in the trash or skipped clicking on the link sent via Eventbrite or deleted the Paperless Post invitation, without a second thought. Bombarded by requests, the natural knee-jerk response is often simply to say no. But hold on! 
Are there networking events you should never say no to? Yes, these do exist, especially in the workplace. Read more on when you should not say No to networking http://buff.ly/2mTMVeK #BYDN

I never know how to answer the big, vague networking questions I’m frequently asked, such as:

- I’m seeking a new job (resume attached), do you know of anyone looking to hire someone with my skill-set?
- I’m seeking investors for startup, who do you think I should speak to?
- We’re putting together an advisory board, who would be good?

So I rarely do. Sometimes I respond with “can you be more specific?”. More often than not however, I hit delete.

"Whether you love to network, view it as a necessary evil, or can’t understand why you need to do anything besides work hard at your chosen profession to get more work, this book is for you. Let’s talk a little bit about what Kelly has to say about networking, and then run, do not walk, to buy this book (available in hard copy and electronic)." - Zen And The Art Of Legal Marketing, Book Review of #BYDN
